September 12, 2013 // // LINCOLN, NE. – Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers is proud to announce their newest opening in Lincoln, Nebraska, on Monday, September 16th at 601 R Street, Suite 110 in the West Haymarket Entertainment District. This new development, which expands the historic train yards as a live, work and play neighborhood, brings a Mellow feeling to this eclectic and growing section of Lincoln.

“We have been familiar with the brand ever since our daughter went to Clemson University. We knew it was the perfect fit for Lincoln and Nebraska as a whole. We are thrilled for the community to get to finally experience what Mellow is all about,” states Debbie and Mike Nelson, owners of the Mellow Mushroom Lincoln location.

The menu features a variety of handcrafted pizzas, hoagies, salads, calzones and appetizers, dishes that use only the highest quality ingredients. Options for vegetarians, vegans and kids are available, along with gluten free options.

Anchoring the primary pedestrian and vehicular intersection outside the new multiplex arena, this corner store is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Honoring the developer’s goals and the history of the site, the patio is accessorized with gears, sculptures and colorful sunflowers to set the stage.

The genesis for the theme is revealed in the form of the artist’s interpretation of Mother Earth. Symbolically carrying softballs as pollen to generate the art throughout the restaurant, bees constructed of recycled materials move across the ceiling, paying visits to a life-size mosaic of a stained glass tree, presenting themselves to their queen bee in her hive made of pennies, under the shade of football sunflowers, and building another hive above the bar that drips with honey. This whimsical construction is just one of the truly unique sports and Mellow artworks throughout the restaurant. It all exists under a larger than life mushroom that fills and canopies the entire space.

To complement the dining experience, there is a full service bar with a large variety of craft beers, wine and cocktails. Mellow Mushroom will feature college and pro sports on large televisions spaced throughout the restaurant, making Mellow a great location for all of your dining, entertainment and sports viewing needs.
